I'm okay with this. The committee has stated that they re-rank every week. LSU beating Bama in Tuscaloosa was enough for them to be ranked #1, deservedly so. However, they have no more ranked teams left and we have 2 top 15 teams in our next 3 games. If we take care of business we'll jump them again. And if Oregon & Utah keep winning, the winner of that game will likely jump Bama.
I predict Ohio State will continue to blow people out and retake the #1 spot.
1. Ohio State (13-0)
2. LSU (13-0)
3. Clemson (13-0)
4. Oregon (12-1)
5. Oklahoma (12-1)
6. Georgia (11-2)
7. Florida (10-2)
8. Utah (11-2)
9. Alabama (10-2) (I have them losing at Auburn)
10. Minnesota (11-2) (I have them losing to Iowa but beating Wisconsin)
11. Penn State (10-2)
12. Auburn (9-3)
13. Baylor (11-2)
14. Wisconsin (9-3)
15. Michigan (9-3)
Don't care about the rest
I've been reading on Twitter (take that for what it's worth) that the NCAA was notified first. It just so happens we are playing the flagship school from his home state where he personally knows around 1/4 of their roster. All it takes is for one of them to say something.
They're dealing with the NCAA, that's what. I think 3M was correct above where he said they have been trying behind the scenes, weren't able to get it done in time and were forced to rule him ineligible pending further investigation.
I think that's exactly how this played out.
I'd like to think of this as more of an atonement.
Xennial (1979). We're the short micro-generation between Gen X and Millenials. We have a lot in common with both. We had childhoods similar to that of Gen X (when kids still went outside and played) but are more tech savvy like the Millenials.
I've been a west coaster for 15 years and I used to hate it but now I love it. For the match-ups where my nerves are going to be shot (like this and TTUN) for me, nooners are perfect. The game is over by just after 12:30 our time and I can (hopefully) enjoy the rest of my day stress-free.
Don’t be so sure. In 2014, the committee had undefeated FSU ranked behind Alabama & Oregon who each had losses in their final rankings.
First 2 out:
The best thing for OU is that they made a comeback and didn't lose by 30. That might benefit them in the end, even if KState collapses down the stretch.
I like to try local microbreweries wherever I go. My go-to beers are usually Hefes, Saisons, Belgian Tripels, wits, pales, blondes, some Hazys and generally only fruity, less hoppy IPAs. It’s rare that I order an amber or a stout, but some of the coffee ones aren’t bad. I’ll get them in a flight just to try it.
I'm currently reading "A Lucky Child" by Thomas Buergenthal, which chronicles a man's recollections about surviving the Holocaust as a child. Sobering stuff.
48-13 Buckeyes. Slow start but another 24 point 2nd quarter breaks their backs in eventual route.
Buckeyes win 59-6. Fields throws for 4TDs and rushes for another. Chase Young gets another strip sack but this one gets returned for a TD. Drue Chrisman doesn't punt until the 4th quarter.
Not for me (Xfinity in the Bay Area). I had to buy the sports package to get it and even with paying it's not HD so the picture quality is shit.
I started Weight Watchers (yes, really) on 1/29/2019 at the advice of a friend who lost a bunch of weight on there. I was 317 at the time. Since then and along with moderate exercise, I'm down 96.4 lbs. I've gone from an XXL being tight to a L being comfortable and tight 44 waist to a loose 36, almost to a 34 but not quite. I would probably be down more but when I'm on vacation I give zero fucks and eat what I want. As long as the overall trend is down I'm fine. The difference between previous diets and now is that I would let one bad weekend derail the whole thing. Now I know it's just a blip and move on and that seems to be working.
*Now* it feels like game week!
Independence has to do with ownership structure, not sources. 11W is not owned by either the university nor a larger media conglomerate. While Jason, Ramzy, etc. may have incorporated their interests, that would not exclude the site from being independent. However, if they sold that interest to say ESPN, Bleacher Report, etc., the site would technically no longer be independent.
I went to London in 2016 and ended up finding a casino at midnight to watch the Nebraska game. Ended up getting back to my room at about 5am and was a bag of shit the following day.
I now have the song "Hungry Eyes" and scenes from Dirty Dancing stuck in my head. Thanks, Kevin!
Looking at the schedule, the one that concerns me is Sparty at home being a letdown after a potential big win on the road at night in Lincoln. Plus Sparty seems to play us tougher at the Shoe than in EL.
You have no idea how happy this makes me. I moved away from Toledo about 15 years ago so I hadn't really been keeping track.I just knew that all of the locations I used to visit had closed so I figured they had gone out of business. Next time I'm back in Toledo I'm making it a point to stop there.
